 As of this post, only two pre-registration slots remain for Nox Terminus. To make sure we have room for players who plan to get in with generic tickets, we're adding 10 additional characters to the game. These new characters include a Deathwatch Kill-team and the crew of a Chartist vessel.

Would that I could, I'd show up as the underhive dreg "Steve".

Gamergate Primer

Unified WH40kRP Ruleset Homebrew - Personal Notes
Talking Necrons. Dreadknights. Centurion Armour. Sororitas-murdering Grey Knights.
These things are dumb and do not exist. This is non-negotiable and undebatable.
